Crossover Creations- Lovely DIY Gift Bags

Crossover posts are posts from my main blog that also fit in this blog's topics.

An easy way to make gift bags and turn it into a craft for children.

My boys loved helping make these last year. You can make each one different.

Cheap adorable gift bags made from paper sacks. The ones you can get 100 of for a dollar.

Fold about an inch if the top if the paper lunch sack in on itself.

Use a hole punch to make holes for the ribbons, punch the holes about an inch in from either side.

Use felt, foam, ribbon, buttons, paint, cotton or whatever to create decoration on front

Use ribbon through the hole punch holes for the handles.

So easy and the possibilities are endless, doesn't have to be Christmas only. Could be for birthday party thank you bags. Could be for valentines. Use to give store bought or homemade candy, cookies, treats, gifts, ornaments... Or whatever!

Ones we made last year for the boys gifts to others.

About Me

My photo

I'm a semi crunchy stay at home wife and mama of two boys. Extend Breastfeed, Cloth diaper, Cosleep, Babywear, Homeschool, Homebirth. My sons and I have some serious health concerns (allergies, growth hormone, kidney, lung, spine, etc...). We didn't realize they were genetic (or I had) until after Trace's birth. Tristian had some big medical and possibly/probably autism related delays in early childhood but also taught himself to read at 2yrs and started on math equations at 4yrs. Trace is bit delayed across the board by about 6 months, but as he's 1yr+ behind in height... it's not very noticable ;-) Trace is very musical and hands on. With plenty of common sense, love, good doctors and faith we are doing wonderfully!

This wonderful chapter in my life of discovering the green subculture has (mostly) ended. Living green on a budget has changed from the thrill of discovery to habit. This blog remains in rememberance- with occasionally crossover posting. I hope you join me- the same green mama on a budget, in a new blog celebrating life's daily experiences- LIFE O'KAY Still lots of crafts & crunchiness- with even more sweet family moments.
